While talking to fans about cosplay ideas Twitch streamer Macaiyla discovered that she could pull off Junkrat from Overwatch surprisingly well.

Macaiyla has been dating popular Twitch streamer and League of Legends star ‘Tyler1’ since the two met at TwitchCon in 2016.

During a recent stream Macaiyla was discussing which characters she could pull off a cosplay of, and discovered Overwatch’s Junkrat just might be the perfect fit.

Macaiyla often appears on Tyler1’s stream, but has a sizable following of her own as well.

After hearing suggestions from chat, a lightbulb went off in Macaiyla’s head when someone brought up Junkrat.

“A Junkrat cosplay? Oh my god, my chin is probably as big as his,” she said before pulling up a picture of the hero to compare. “It is, this is so wrong.”

Macaiyla then compared her chin to the image of Junkrat and wouldn’t you know it, from the clip it seems like she her and Junkrat are the perfect match.

Whether or not she actually ends up cosplaying the Australian explosives enthusiast remains to be seen but the comparison did cause quite a stir in chat.

Macaiyla, obsessed with her chin?

This wasn’t the first time Macaiyla’s chin has come up on stream, when her boyfriend lost $10,000 on a bet she thought the money could have probably been used on something else chin-related.

“I could have bought a chin surgery for that money,” she mentioned. “You know, Tyler really didn’t think about us, it’s unbelievable. I could have had a normal chin by now.”

Not being able to get chin surgery may have been a blessing in disguise, because if she had she wouldn’t be able to pull off the Junkrat look anymore.

League cosplayer descends from the heavens as amazing Dragonslayer Diana

Diana has descended from the heavens of Mount Targon here on Earth ⁠— or so you could be mistaken into thinking. Scottish cosplayer ‘anaelic’ has once again delivered the goods for League of Legends fan, putting on an epic display with her Dragonslayer Diana cosplay.

Seeing a Diana cosplay for League of Legends is rare. However, finding an exquisite one is almost impossible. The Scorn of the Moon, with her heavy armor and massive Moonsilver blade, isn’t up there with one of the popular champions to cosplay.

However, that hasn’t stopped anaelic from creating one of the best ⁠— if not the best ⁠— Diana cosplay with her incredible rendition of the Lunari’s Dragonslayer skin.

The Dragonslayer skin for Diana is one of her most intricate, but that didn’t stop anaelic.

Anaelic has been working on her Dragonslayer Diana cosplay since lockdown began. She was originally going to take it to conventions, but with 2020 stopping all of those, she instead used the project as motivation.

“This project has instead been my distraction, the thing that’s kept me motivated to stay productive, and I’m so proud that I at least have this to show for all the extra time I’ve had,” she said on Instagram after completing her cosplay.

You can tell just how much effort she put into it right from the first glance. Anaelic has managed to recreate the Aspect’s sunset-colored armor perfectly, not forgetting a single panel on Diana’s intricate outfit.

She managed to keep all the pieces together with velcro, although the cosplay is ⁠— understandably ⁠— very hard to get around it.

“I honestly don’t know how I’m going to survive a full day at a con in this cosplay because it is so hard to move about it! It was well worth it though because we got some amazing photos,” she added.

Anaelic also considered all the small details ⁠— she recreated the smoky effect on her blade with a smoke machine and LED lights built into the crescent. The cosplay is not only one of the best Diana ones we’ve seen, but one of the best cosplays of the year. Period.

The Scottish cosplayer isn’t stopping here though. If you’re wondering what anaelic’s next project is, wonder no more. She is currently working on a Spirit Blossom Lillia cosplay, and she’s trying to make it perfect from head-to-hoof. We’ve even covered her progress on it so far!
